Old style Collects request still seems to work. Will this change?

According to this article: https://shopify.dev/tutorials/migrate-from-collect-endpoint-to-collections#:~:text=As%20of%20version....

It says that for smart collections, GET /admin/collects/#{collect_id}.json will no longer work starting January 2020. Well, it's half way through November 2020 and as far as I can tell, that endpoint still works just fine for smart collections.


Is that going to stop working any time soon or can I just keep on using it ?

Hey @Listing_Team,

The doc is referring to functionality offered in our 2020-01 API version. We release a new API version every 4 months, and each version is available for 1 year. If you're still using the the legacy functionality, you're likely using a version which has been fully deprecated and could be removed at any time. It's recommended that you update to a current version with current functionality so your app doesn't experience any interruptions.
